A video to make you smile this Sunday

Some time ago, I re-introduced the weekly palate cleanser posts (a.k.a. video of the week) on this blog. During the week, I post about road closures, stores opening, stores closing, news and things to do around Alexandria, Virginia. So, I thought maybe one post during the week could be just for fun. Therefore, a post that will cleanse the palate.

For this week, whether you have had a good week or a bad one, here is a viral video of Vin Scully reciting the famous speech performed by James Earl Jones in the 1989 movie ‘Field of Dreams.’

Los Angeles Dodgers play by play man Vin Scully, who makes a grocery list sound interesting,  is winding down his Hall of Fame broadcasting career after 67 seasons with the Dodgers.

As I mentioned earlier today, I took my son to his very first Washington Nationals game today. Boy, what a pitching performance! Jordan Zimmerman put on a pitching performance for the ages and ended up throwing the first no-hitter in team history.

If you haven’t seen the final out, here it is. Boy, what a catch! Feel free to play it numerous times.

Today is tax day but it is also Jackie Robinson Day around Major League Baseball. The day is celebrated to commemorate the anniversary of the Hall of Famer breaking baseball’s color barrier and his immeasurable impact on the game of baseball.

Enjoy this mini bio on Jackie Robinson. Did you know that while serving in the military, Jackie Robinson was arrested for refusing to move to the back of a segregated bus? In 1947, he made history when his debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers ended racial segregation in Major League Baseball.
